Time limited guardianship orders – date of expiry

Aug 31, 2020

Guardians are asked to note that the temporary amendment made by the Coronavirus (Scotland) Bill to Section 58(4) of The Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 has the effect of “stopping the clock” on the duration of all guardianship orders. The only exception are orders granted for an indefinite period whilst Part 2 11(3) of the Coronavirus (Scotland) Bill has effect.
